Estádio dos Barreiros XXI
Club: CS Marítimo | Opening: 1957 | Capacity: 9,117 seats
History and description
Estadio dos Barreiros XXI officially opened on 5 May 1957. In the following 50 years, only minor changes were made such as the conversion of the standing areas into seating.
However, by the turn of the millennium and with Marítimo’s regular participation in the UEFA tournaments, it became clear that the club was in need of a more modern home.
In 2009, plans were presented for a redevelopment of Estadio dos Barreiros into a 9,000-all-seater, and soon after works were started. Works were expected to finish in 2010, however were halted before completion due to funding problems of the consortium in charge of the project.
Works were resumed in 2014 and by the end of the 2014-15 season new covered stands on three sides were completed with only the old main stand left standing.
